Didio, Lee And Other DC'ers To Appear On

Syfy contestants paired with six of DC’s most respected artists



Source: DC Blog

From a Press Release at the DC Blog today, it was announced that Syfy’s popular unscripted series, Face Off, will have an infusion of super powers in the form of DC Entertainment’s Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, along with six of DC’s most respected artists.  In the hit competition show’s new episode airing Tuesday, January 22at 9 p.m. ET/PT, a group of special effects make-up artists will be challenged to create their own Super Heroes.

 
Filmed in the midst of San Diego Comic-Con 2012, each contestant was paired with a DC Entertainment artist to receive creative input and assistance with their designs.  An outstanding array of talent participated in the process including Jim Lee, Mark Buckingham (FABLES), Cliff Chiang (WONDER WOMAN), Tony S. Daniel (ACTION COMICS), David Finch (BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT), Nicola Scott (EARTH 2) and J.H. Williams, III (BATWOMAN).
 
In the Super Hero episode of Face Off, not only will the contestants battle to continue on in the competition, but the winning design will also be featured in the January 30th release of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #16, giving the winner a chance to have their work exposed to a broad DC Entertainment audience.

Until DC editorial steps in and deems the design not extreme enough and removes it from JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #16 at the last minute.

fair warning to the competing special effects make-up artists:

if they want to win, their design better include armor elements, lots of unnecessary lines, and a popped collar.

Nah, it's far more likely that the episode itself will end with a special appearance by Bob Harras, in which he, Didio and Lee will reject all of the designs and declare themselves the winners.

Well, other than the thigh-straps, belt pouches, Thor's EXTREME 90s style double-swords, and excessive face lines on everyone.
Oh, have they explained yet why the Indestructible Hulk needs armor and wrist-bracers ?

Same reason the invulnerable Wonder Woman needs them: stylish fashion sense, and to cover gigantic bewbs?

I see exactly zero popped collars. Advantage: Marvel.

After which they'll reverse themselves, and say the chosen contestant really was the winner all along, they never declared themselves the winners, they were just "waiting for his/her next design to come in".

Love the show, the dishonored theme episode was one of the stronger ones of last season so I'm sure that this one will be just as cool.
